Republican Hindu Coalition founder, Shalabh “Shalli” Kumar, says there is no “racist blood” in Trump’s heart.

From the halls of the US Republican National Convention (RNC), the founder of the Republican Hindu Coalition, Shalabh “Shalli” Kumar, defends Donald Trump’s policies on the economy and immigration.

Kumar also tells Mehdi Hasan that the nominee’s lack of political experience is “the best qualification”.

Kumar, who says he has personally met Trump, supports the nominee’s plan to build a wall on the Mexican border and have Mexico pay for it, saying Trump “can negotiate that”.
